LOTD 08/16/2015 – Summertime

Summer Breeze 1a

As Time Passes Me By

The butterflies are floating through the air.
The grass is green,
and the trees are tall.
As the wind whistles through my hair,
I let life pass me by.
As time ticks and the clock goes by,
the flowers grow taller as life passes me by.
And I dream of floating right on by.
But now it’s time to stop dreaming,
and wake up to a hot summer day.

[Alice G.]
Summer Breeze 2aToday I was in a total summer mood…
That does not happen too often, but sometimes it really happens 😉
The outfit I am wearing we made for an event called FAD. The theme was Sundae Sunday.
Something dreamy and summer colored immediately came to my mind and it should have a little bit of ‘Kitsch’ as well. Why? Because Sundae Sunday reminds me of kinda the good old 50s/60s times with all the neat pastel toned colors and as well with a lot of plastic jewelry and accessories :p
The “Summer Breeze” dress – here shown in yellow – is a short dress with an amazing deep neckline in the front and as well a super sexy back with a lot of lines crossing your back side.
The “Tea Time” hat should speak for itself with the cute tea-pot and cup on the top.
To match the whole look we made the “Manon Heels” in yellow as well, with their cool heels, that totally add something special to the sweet look 😉

Business can be fashion and sexy as well ;)

GizzA 01

The new “Nautical Business” outfit from GizzA once again shows that even a business outfit can be fashion and sexy 😉 .

The new Nautical line from GizzA brought us many new and wonderful outfits and the “Nautical Business” outfit is just one of them. I already showed you another one a few weeks ago.

The ensemble contains the amazing blouse and the super sexy non symmetric skirt with the long row of buttons in the front. The ruffles at the bottom of the skirt and the way how the top is designed it has a lightly vintage character especially in the black and white colors.

For the shoes I decided to wear the new “Betty Heels” as well from GizzA, wich are made for the high version of the Slink mesh feet.

GizzA 02

To underline that vintage touch I added the “Oversized Sunglasses” from Izzie’s and the super cool “Vintage Romance” hat from LODE. The cute clutch I have from Lybra Rage, but from her old brand called “House of Rage” and I am not sure if it still is for sale.

The amazing and natural looking nails are from Nailed It out of the “French Pastel Set”.

At this point I really need to say a few words. Usually for events I keep it to the facts, but for this creations there is a wonderful artistic background. Trinity Yazimoto, owner and designer behind Petite Chat (*PC*), is a wonderful artist. She tries to bring her art to her clothing. Like you can see in the first picture, to nearly every dress there is a painted picture as a base. I talked to her about it – she really is a wonderful and kind lady –  and she told me about how difficult it is to apply the painted art to the mesh prims. Mesh reacts very weird to some textures, so you can imagine how long it takes Trinity until the actual picture shows perfect on the designs! I will try to make another post in the near future where I can spotlight this amazing creations a little more 😉 .

Brave Woman – A Tribute to Donna Flora

Love for Donna Flora full

Some brave women, not the famous ones, fought for the right to vote early in the last century, they were called Suffragettes in a pejorative manner. They went on hunger strikes, were forcibly fed, went into passive resistance and took other measures to claim that women are equal. After almost 20 years of fighting, the right to vote was finally granted in 1919 (USA) and 1920 (UK). Being a political decision, it had a strong impact on the women’s lives and their appearance. Long hair was cut, and skirts shortened, the corsets went. Around then Coco Chanel invented the little black dress offering an unknown freedom of movement tot he wearer. She was right when she said, this dress would be “a sort of uniform for all women of taste.“ Today we think of Flappers, thinking back tot he glorious 20s, who would not have been without some brave women fighting for their rights.

But there are other ways to be brave, face an illness, be there for others, raise children, solidarize and to speak up when needed, to name a few.

When talking about the Love Donna Event (http://lovedonnaflora.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/so-cancer-happened/), Mal and I decided to pay our tribute, too. I guess you will get why we picked the 20’s theme.

 

As Mal was too late fort he Love Donna Flora event, she will donate all her Flapper skins you buy in the main shop. Click here for more details http://wiccamerlin.de/silken-moon-flapper-line/

Or help by visiting the Love Donna Event and enjoy what the awesome designers of SL donated to pay their tribute. The Love for Donna Flora Event will take place from the 25th of July until August the 11th. For a Limo please click HERE (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brookridge/135/127/31)

Our hearts go out to Sqinternet, the person behind Donna Flora, please send your hearts, too.

Love for Donna Flora Close

My personal favourites of MVW2013 – Formal Gown of Russia 2013 by Champagne! Sparkling Couture

MVW 2013 Russia Formal full

Miss Virtual World 2013 – Again BoSL showcased an amazing event on December the 15th 2013, with the finale of the MVW 2013 contest. Many countries were represented by amazing ladies and it was really an exciting event. Designers and models worked together for their 2 final looks. One evening gown and one national costume for each lady. Every year when I saw the MVW finale it was an exciting moment to see the results, that designers and models worked on for so many weeks. Last year I took the challenge to make a full catalogue of all the gowns and costumes. The idea must have inspired some bloggers this year and they started to do that for the MVW 2013 designs. I decided for my own not to do the same again and just would like to showcase my personal favourites. First I thought about to do my personal top 12, but then I figured that I like more than 12 and just thought about doing all the ones that really caught my attention in no particular order

:)

The wonderful deep red gown with the rich and detailed corset for Miss V Russia 2013, Dolcestella Draconia, was made by Enzo Champagne, owner and designer of Champagne! Sparkling Couture. The “Russian Passion” gown really reflects a style that i can imagine on a russian high society party. The huge red skirt is decorated with some delicate gems while the corsage is made with an amazing texture rich of gold and very filigree, detailed created. The amazing flowers that are going down from the waist over the skirt add a very elegant touch as well. The wonderful headpiece as well is part of the “Russian Passion” . The sheer lace that covers the eyes is hold by amazing 3 flowers that repeat the wonderful flowers of the skirt. The “Russian Passion” you can find at the Champagne! Sparkling Couture Mainstore together with some more amazing new releases.

My personal favourites of MVW2013 – National Costume of Miss Italy 2013 by [AD] Creations

MVW - Miss Italy National Full

Miss Virtual World 2013 – Again BoSL showcased an amazing event on December the 15th 2013, with the finale of the MVW 2013 contest. Many countries were represented by amazing ladies and it was really an exciting event. Designers and models worked together for their 2 final looks. One evening gown and one national costume for each lady. Every year when I saw the MVW finale it was an exciting moment to see the results, that designers and models worked on for so many weeks. Last year I took the challenge to make a full catalogue of all the gowns and costumes. The idea must have inspired some bloggers this year and they started to do that for the MVW 2013 designs. I decided for my own not to do the same again and just would like to showcase my personal favourites. First I thought about to do my personal top 12, but then I figured that I like more than 12 and just thought about doing all the ones that really caught my attention in no particular order :)

The italian community was always very strong represented in many MVW challenges… like we had Mimmi Boa 2009 winning the crown, Mavi Beck in 2010 in the top 10, Angels Milena in 2011 in the top 12 and Anna Sapphire as winner of the MVW 2012 crown and again Italy was able to place on the winner stairs with a 1st runner-up in 2013!

Now come to one costume where I had a bit of background information from our Miss Italy 2013, Miss Natzuka Miliandrovic. She is originally from Venice in Italy and I really like if models try to represent their own home country. But Nat even went a step further and chose 2 italian designers as well for her 2 gowns. The national costume was made by Aliza Karu, owner and designer of [AD] creations. Since the costume did not have the typical italian colors.. what mostly are considered red, green and white like the flag… I asked Nat what the inspiration was for her national gown and what she said really kinda touched my heart…

Natzuka Miliandrovic:

“It does not make any sense, the one who knows you and does not love you, Italy.”
This was the feeling expressed by “Vincenzo Monti” and that represents the italian Renaissance, the historical period that redefined Italy and its artistic and politic identity in Europe. The inspiration from this national costume by Aliza Karu, comes from the desire and expectation of a modern cultural and artistic rebirth of my country.  The costume is a quotations of the incredible work of art of “Antonio Canova”, the venetian sculpture that is one the symbols of the italian Renaissance. The dress flow softly in its precious textures and transparencies and it reminds the voluptuous mediterranean women portrayed by Canova, with a particular referral to his sculpture “La venere italica” of which was said “It flatters the paradise in this valley of tears” and that clearly explain that the meaning of the beauty, in Italy, it doesn’t lie in an empty admiration, but it’s a need for comfort the soul.”

MVW - Miss Italy National Close

The very artistic “Miss Nat” gown is partwise mesh made and as well has flexible prims. The sheer top gives a very sexy touch to the very elegant and artistic rest of the design. The shoulder part with the chain over the right shoulder that holds the little jewelry part is a great contrast to the ruffled arm part on the left side. The ruffles are repeated in the back for the amazing train and the little shining silver decorations you will find again on the wonderful skirt. The incredible head-piece, the wonderful tiara that as well carries the silver and the ruffles is part of the beautiful “Miss Nat” dress as well.

To get your “Miss Nat” gown you just have to visit the [AD] Creations Mainstore, as far as I know, it is now available there 😉

Wicca’s Wardrobe: No Cage

 The Crow and the Raven

A CROW was jealous of the Raven, because he was considered a bird
of good omen and always attracted the attention of men, who noted
by his flight the good or evil course of future events.  Seeing
some travelers approaching, the Crow flew up into a tree, and
perching herself on one of the branches, cawed as loudly as she
could.  The travelers turned towards the sound and wondered what
it foreboded, when one of them said to his companion, “Let us
proceed on our journey, my friend, for it is only the caw of a
crow, and her cry, you know, is no omen.”  

 Those who assume a character which does not belong to them, only
 make themselves ridiculous.
